Papantonio: How Republicans Alienated The General Public

Earlier this year, the GOP made the disastrous decision to declare a war on half the population, and that was their war on women. The GOP honestly believed that women were longing for the days when a man would tell them how to live, what to do with their bodies, and how to vote. But the Republicans didn’t seem to realize that American women weren’t looking to return to the gender roles of the 1930’s, and the votes this year showed that women were fed up with the GOP. Mike Papantonio talks about the female voter revolt against the Republican Party with Nancy Cohen, author of the book “Delirium”.

1. End sentence of not letting our guard down is so true.

We need to look for strong progressive women to take on the rwers in 2014 and continue to take back the congress..

2. they are both right. cohen is looking at how often womens issues are put in back of bus or just

fuckin thrown under the bus. so i get why she stands on that. and i expect nothing less of women across the nation, and the women we elected to speak out repeatedly, sontinually, constantly.

and P is absolutely right on. bring women in to balance, on these progressive issues, regardless of what they are is so very valuable for us as a nation. and we NEED/MUST see women as a whole and not as a gender. so very very important.

we need to hear that she is a good senator. not a good woman senator.

both right.

and there is no reason both cannot be accomplished. they are compatible and complimentary to each other.
